    Its a toss up now between a powerbass 3000d and an incriminator 20.1

    I have narrowed it down now, I was going to go for a crunch but dnt think its worth it as my bxi is 2600 rms.

    The powerbass is 3000rms and the IA is 1800w rms @ 1ohm but underated. so now i have to choose between 1 or the other. All I want to know is will there be a NOTICEABLE differnece in power between the PB and IA . sorry for the noob question

    what ohm load do you want to run your system? The 20.1 isn't magic, it can't make up 1200 watts at 1 ohm. It'll do a great job at .35 but will shorten it's lifespan.

    he was saying the difference bwteen the two amps at 1ohm is 1200 watts, and that no matter how undrrated the 20.1 is, it's not going to make up 1200 watts.

    misunderstood sorry

    so would I notice the difference in 1200rms then audibly . U saying the pb might be a better choice.

    It'll definitely do more power for your application. And yes, going from 1800 to 3000 watts is a noticable difference.

    Wel after all that carry on from myself, I got the IA in the end.

    Seems to sound cleaner than my hifonics.
